“It takes time in the morning for me to become George, time to adjust to what is expected of George and how he is to behave. By the time I have dressed and put the final layer of polish on the now slightly stiff but quite perfect George I know fully what part I’m suppose to play.”
Today was one of these perfect summery days. Nursing a cup of perfectly brewed coffee on the beach with the sand between my toes. Listening to my favourite tunes in the car with the windows down. Spending hours on a rooftop terrace and having friends over to share some cold drinks. So happy that summer is just about to start…

I love the idea of essentials. Things that really matter in your life. When browsing through oh so lovely obsessions I came across GQ’s series 10 essentials which I have almost forgotten about. Although lists like these have a rather playful (and commercial) background, they do say quite a bit about their creators. Also it is fun to imagine my personal picks…

A few days ago I placed a little book order. I was missing some gold old offline reading and the little pile on my bedside table didn’t really spark any interest. So I did a little bit of research and came across this little gem: The Diary Of A Nose by Jean-Claude Ellena. A behind the scenes peek into the creative process of creating a fragrance in which the “parfumeur exclusif” of the house of Hermès chronicles his travels and experiments.

A must-see classic starring Jude Law, Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow. Not only the plot is brilliant, the styling is noteworthy all by itself.

…summer. Wouldn’t a boat trip be fabulous? Seeing all kind of different places and spending a lot of time at sea seems so tempting right now. And if you are wondering who created this beautifully cut summer dress: Narciso Rodriguez.

It is not that big of surprise that the looks of the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris are exhaustively documented during fashion week. The looks in question, however, could almost be described as surprising since their are bare of any attention seeking elements like unexpected colour collisions or funny head pieces. Emmanuelle Alt’s styling ideas can be easily translated, a belt tied over a coat became an actual thing last season. Her wardrobe staples are pieces that you are already wearing on a daily basis or that you could imagine easily among your favourites. Like the Isabel Marant herringbone jacket and the Cartier Tank watch.
